Hey Everyone!

 

I just joined the forum, but I have been looking around for a little while now.  Since I have been looking at everyone elses builds I thought I should share my latest one. 

 

This started as an AMT 1972 Chevy Fleetside that I picked up from a garage sale and on the side of the box it had "parts" written on it.  I bought it anyway and brought it home to find that there were almost enough parts to build two trucks; by almost I mean doubles of most parts, and none of others... 

 

So since this wasn't going to be perfect to begin with I tried somethings on this one that I have never tried before.  I started out with scratch building a flatbed for it.  Then I took it one step further and tried my hand at weathering.  So considering this was built with some missing parts, and a few first for me, I think it turned out alright.

 

The pictures were taken with my cellphone so I'm sorry if they are blurry.

 

Thanks for looking

Great job for your first try at weathering and scratch building. Keep it going
